Made with beef brisket with perfect amount of spices. Great take out. Plan on bringing a cooler to take a few dozen back home.

Quite simply, the best tamales I have ever eaten. Just the right amount of spice, and filled nicely. No dining in, but the deck makes for a nice outdoor experience. Can't wait to go back!

I recently went there on a Saturday night. I stood in line for about 20 minutes and when i got to the window it still took another 10 minutes. The tamales were very greasy compared to Does Eat House and quite salty to eat. After 2 tamales, I had to throw them in the garbage. If you like a lot of grease and salt and add spicey taste, then you will enjoy these tamales.

I've been coming to the Delta for years for work and just found this place. It's a drive thru w/ picnic tables so don't come looking for luxury. But if you want good tamales this place is the place for you. No diet drinks were available during my visit.

I ordered their sampler dish that has wings and tamales, plus fries. Tamales were actually ok. Wings were very dry, and the fries were soggy and a bit undercooked. The order takes a long time to prepare, in my opinion, which makes perplexing the presence of their drive-thru. Friendly service, but I don't know that i'd be excited to return.
